MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Comparison: Which Design is Best?

Macbook Repair Jakarta - From the outside they are very similar. With a Retina display, M1 processor, and even a similar price tag, it's easy to think that the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are pretty much the same device. But are they really the same? Judging by the specs and features, we'll find a bigger difference (there's even a 16-inch MacBook Pro for those who need a bigger screen, though it's still equipped with previous Intel processors). So which one should you buy? In this comparison we'll be placing the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro side by side, both with M1 processors.

What's the Design of the Them?

The two MacBooks look very similar at first glance: they have the same aluminum finish and coloration (the MacBook Air has a gold version) and the biggest difference is in the Touch Bar, which we'll talk about later.

The screens of both laptops are Retina, with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and 227 ppi. Apple has made some of the best laptop screens, so whichever model you choose, the quality will be very good, although there are some differences in color gamut and brightness.

In our tests, we found that the MacBook Pro hit 485 nits of brightness, while the MacBook Air only hit 389. The MacBook Pro also did better in color accuracy: 91 percent on AdobeRGB, compared to 79 percent. This means that for those who need to work on something where color accuracy is important, the best choice is the MacBook Pro. For others, the MacBook Air is enough.

The screens of the two models are slightly different, but not the keyboard. Now you don't have to worry about the keys being exposed anymore, because both have Magic Keyboard, leaving the conventional keyboard behind. Magic Keyboard is made even more comfortable and with very consistent operation, in the style of the old Apple keyboard.

Plus, both laptops include a large trackpad, which has enough room to control your macOS. This is the best trackpad you'll find on a laptop, either from Apple or from any other brand.

As mentioned earlier, there's one major difference between the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro 13 that's immediately noticeable: the Touch Bar. The MacBook Air has never been included in any model and continues in the latest models, retaining the classic row of buttons for various functions plus the Touch ID button on the right. MacBook Pros, on the other hand, do have Touch Bars, but there are rumors that they will be replaced by physical buttons.

MacBook Air and MacBook Pro have a USB-C compatible Thunderbolt 3 port that also works with USB-4. This port is used for various kinds of connections, both charging and data transfer. There are only two on the MacBook Air, which means a USB hub may have to be purchased if needed. And the same goes for the MacBook Pro 13 with the M1 chip. Apple still sells MacBook Pro 13 models with Intel processors that have four USB-C ports, but it would be easier to opt for higher performance with the M1 processor and purchase a USB hub if necessary.

Additionally, both computers have a 720p webcam, stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. In the audio area, the MacBook Pro's speakers are superior and far better than most other notebooks out there.
